An blind eighteenth-century judge, Sir John Fielding and his assistant and ward, Jeremy Proctor, investigate a series of murders that leads them around streets and alleyways of eighteenth-century London. 15,000 first printing. BOMC Alt.

Blackwell North Amer
John Fielding was famous not only as cofounder of London's first police force, the Bow Street Runners, but also as a magistrate of keen intellect, fairness and uncommon detective ability. When a crime was committed, he often took it upon himself to solve it. What made this all the more remarkable was that he was blind.
Now the blind magistrate and his young assistant and ward, Jeremy Proctor, face a series of crimes that hit shockingly close to home. Prostitutes are being murdered around Covent Garden, and there are troubling implications about the identity of the killer. Baffled and frustrated, Fielding devises a daring and desperate plan, but the consequences are unexpected - and more terrible even than he could imagine.

The fourth in the Sir John Fielding and Jeremy Proctor series. This one sees Jeremy getting more mature, learning new skills and participating in capturing two truly brutal killers. I'm not much of a fan of violence, and some of the incidents in this book were really gory. However, to miss this book in the series would be to miss part of Jeremy's development into the lawyer he becomes as he writes the book. The clues to the identities of the murderers were there, but cleverly hidden, so that made figuring out the puzzle challenging, which is one reason I read mysteries.
